Float Trips are the perfect way to spend the day fishing for Trout and Smallmouth Bass. Cover miles of water and fish where most folks cannot reach by cruising the river in style in our perfectly setup Drift Boats, Rafts, and Catarafts.
Float Trip for Trout
The Tuckasegee River is a fantastic western sized river that offers plenty of diversity in fishing options. With numerous fish species, and two Delayed Harvest sections with up to 34,500 trout per mile near Bryson City, the Tuckasegee River is a complete year around fishery!
We have guided more trips down the “Tuck” and “Little T” than any other outfitter in Western North Carolina. Our staff knows every rock and secret fishing hole on these rivers. Head guide Eugene Shuler grew up on the banks of the Tuckasegee River, and knows it like the back of his hand. To date he has guided more than 5,000 Float Trips down the Tuckasegee River, nearly double of any other guide or outfitter in the area.
